Yet another entry in the "cop that plays by his own rules" genre. Jack Vacek is Turner, a renegade cop who purposely defies his authority by trying to expose a city-wide drug ring that takes him from Los Angeles to Mexico and back.
Some of the alumni from Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) (George Cole, Jack Vacek, Butch Stockton) are seen in the film. Also the black 1977 Cadillac Coupe DeVille seen in the film has a Ronald Moran Cadillac license plate - the same car dealer connected with the Gone in 60 Seconds franchise. See more »
If you liked the original "Gone in 60 Seconds" You'll like this one.
"Double Nickels" is a pretty good 70's car chase flick, which means its not all that good as a film, but for a gearhead like me it's great. Jack Vacek, George Cole, and Ed Abrams were all in "Gone in 60 Seconds." The whole movie has the "Gone" vibe too it. It's about two California Highway Patrolmen (Vacek and Abrams) who moonlight as Repomen for George Cole, it's got some funny bits, some good chases and a great look at 70's California. On the car front, as cops Vacke and Abrams drive pretty sweet '74 or '75 Dodge Monaco's (much like the car in "The Blues Brothers") Vacke and ratty late 50's Chevy pickup, and the last chase is in a BEAUTIFUL 1968 Chevelle SS/396 and a pretty funny chase in a Pinto. Overall its not as good as "Gone in 60 Seconds," but its worth a look if you like car chase flicks.
